Policing challenges of objective overload in managing irregular migration

Policing challenges of objective overload in managing irregular migration


Following the principles of classical and modern migration theories, the study examines irregular migration at the Schengen external borders of Hungary using their analysis and the application of science theory methodology. The evaluation data identifies a migration feature that has not previously affected nations of Europe or other continents in its complexity as Hungary in 2014 and 2015. Based on the examination of the data and the interrelationship between the related elements I can describe a novel approach to the impact of migration, the objective overload of the activities of the policing agencies, which I describe as a new concept. In this paper I introduce a previously unrecorded migration typology element that explores the possibility of verifying the identity of a migrant. I compare the objective effects of migration overload on Hungarian policing organizations with those of mass migration events of the 20th century. The differences reinforce the discrepancy between the concepts of overload and mass migration. By describing the organizational surfaces characteristic of overload migration and its purpose, I also reinforce the novelty of the concept. The objective migration overload effects on policing organizations can be dealt in a meaningful way with a novel methodology, of which 5 elements are presented in the paper.
